They look good - quite a bit dearer than the outgoing V2s, but loads more features, if that's the kind of thing you want. :)

I'm still enthralled with the sounds my Katana makes though (and volume, yikes). I'll stick to my Mustang 3 V2* for now as my 'other' amplifier, tempting though these are. Unless I win the lottery, obviously.

It sounds tremendous DI'd through the PA in stereo ;)

Howard, I'll be sticking with my Mustang 3 v2 for some time to come. I think.  Unless I win the lottery or I get one to demo.  ;)  I'm getting jittery over the Katana though, itching to try one now.

You should definitely try a Katana if you get the chance. They really are quite outstanding, if somewhat more expensive than most of the competition, especially when you add in the cost of the GA-FC which you ideally need to get the most out of it. Thomann have currently got one of the 100 1x12s as B stock, so you could always buy it and then send it back . . although that is rather naughty. No-one seems to have any new 100 1x12s, they're always on 'pre-order' or 'due back in stock on . . ' so getting that one from Thomann might be the only way to test one.

The only annoying thing about the Katana is that it is very firmly mono. I have been running the stereo out from my Zoom pedal - one side into the Katana, one into the Mustang - just for the craic - sounds lovely!

I still haven't had a chance to go try a Katana, but I definitely will do.   So you Zoom pedal has a stereo out?  Is that the G3? Or have you got a different one, didn't know it had that feature.  Wonder if my G5 has the same, I should really read the manual.  :idea:

Afternoon Mick.

I can't imagine that the G5 would not have stereo out.

Here's the back of the G3X

Howard, you're right it does have stereo, not really taken any notice of it until you mentioned it.  Here's the the back of the G5 https://www.zoom.co.jp/sites/default/files/products/downloads/images/G5_rear.jpg
